Unblock Exchange 2013 attachments

I have a new Exchange 2013 standard server and need to be able to unblock .mht files in the OWA interface.  I have tried the following commands in the Exchange Management Shell but the attachments appear to still be blocked:

Set-OwaMailboxPolicy -BlockedFileTypes @(Remove = ".mht")
Set-OwaMailboxPolicy -BlockedFileTypes @(Remove = ".mhtml")
Set-OwaMailboxPolicy -Identity Default -AllowedFileTypes '.mht'
Set-OwaMailboxPolicy -Identity Default -AllowedFileTypes '.mhtml'

I'd rather not zip them. Users want to open attachments on ipads and smartphones
